Since 2009, The Ethics Centre has proudly presented Festival of Dangerous Ideas, an independent, feisty, thought-provoking festival that puts bold speakers, artists and experiences centre stage.

We invite you to join us for the very first fundraising dinner for FODI. Hosted at Kitchen by Mike in Sydney’s CBD, your feasting will directly fuel dangerous ideas getting to the stage for 2024.

You’ll be treated to raucous conversation with special guests and fellow FODI fans. These days there is so much we dare not talk about… well, in true FODI fashion, we’re gonna go there! Sex, drugs, democracy and more as you savour Executive Chef Mike McEnearney’s delectable menu and help us secure funds for FODI. You know the rules: what happens at the Feast stays at the Feast…

Seats are very limited. Don’t be disappointed.

Thank you for helping to secure FODI in 2024

Since 2009 Festival of Dangerous Ideas has brought you an independent, feisty, thought-provoking festival. Striving to bring you bold speakers, artists and experiences that were unexpected, perhaps uncomfortable but always unerringly authentic. You’ve turned up in droves to do danger with us. Thank you.

It’s 2023. Has there been a more urgent time for us to hold space for daring thought and respectful conversations about difficult topics? It’s one year until FODI is slated to take over Carriageworks in Winter 2024. We’ve never shied away from truth.  So, here’s our dangerous truth: FODI need funds to get there.

Thank you for your part in making this happen. See you at the feast.

Oh you can’t dine with us this time? Never fear, you can always make a contribution right now right HERE.
